It's Finally Here!

It's here! Autumn is finally here! My favorite time of the year and 
all the world seems bathed in a soft gold light...

Each leaf on every tree seems to explode with color...

The mornings are now "put on a sweater" chilly and are often bathed in mist... 

I love the colors of each Fall Indian Corn!

Or delicious Autumn apples!

The pop of an orange pumpkin...

...or the glow of a sunflower.

Sunsets seem just a little more beautiful...

And what's better than jumping into a pile of freshly raked, oh so crunchy Fall leaves!

Venture down any country road and you will find farm fields filled
with warm, rich shades of gold & brown... & yellow...

...and red.

Uh huh...the world just seems more beautiful in the Autumn and I am
so excited to greet this magical season once again.

Each leaf...

Each pumpkin and gourd...

Each ear of corn...

There are so many wonderful things to cherish in the Fall. Among
my most favorite are these...

Quiet evenings by the fire playing games

Soft, warm flannel sheets on the bed

The glow of flickering candles

Fall festivals

The scents of cinnamon, oranges & cloves simmering on the stove

Pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn

Hot bowls of hearty soups and stews

Cozy robes and slippers at the end of the day

A hot apple fresh from the the oven
Chili and corn bread or warm polenta cakes

The wind rustling through the leaves

Caramel apples

Hot apple cider...

These are just a few of the things I love about Fall.
What are some of YOUR Autumn joys?

With love always...

I love Fall - my favorite season too. The colors of the trees, but especially the smell of fall. The crispness in the air. Everything about it!!

sounds good. I'll be there. (:
everything is still very green here. WE had a long spring, a not too hot summer ... and now fall is here and the nights are crispy.

Our back yard is just so inviting right now.

I love fall. My favorite things are: The pumpkin patch with my littles, the beautiful trees, our October birthdays, hot cider, picking apples, carmel apples, fun craft and antique shows.
I have missed your posts.

Oh, this is my favorite time of year in Ohio. It reminds me a bit of being back in NM. You've been on some outings and taken some nice shots. Now that I have some time to "play" I need to get out into the country w/my new camera~ Looking forward to seeing you soon. ♥ Sue
